The One with Above Fox's Crib

Little things make me happy these days.
Sooooooooo I've been contemplating what to put on the big empty wall above Fox's bed.

At first I envisioned a frame wall, but I realized that's just too dangerous. I've been through two too many earthquakes since living here for only a year and things have fallen off our walls. Hence the frame wall was moved to this wall and I like how it's the first thing you see when you walk into the nursery. So bright and colorful and fun.

Ok, so ex-nay on the frames above the crib.
Then I thought about putting some kind of vinyl cut out cuz those are really popular right now and I like all the big tree ones. Buuut, after a thorough search on etsy and perusing the selection at Target, I just wasn't finding anything perfect.

Theeeeen, I was reading my friend Kristina Proffitt's blog post called "Ode to the Granny Square and a Share" and I was inspired by this photo (available for purchase here):

I did a quick search on etsy for "crocheted banner" and found Lindsey Ferguson's shop. Specifically, this banner:

I noticed she took custom orders so I quickly emailed her a picture of Fox's nursery and asked if she could custom make me three banners in those bright colors. Yes she can! Woo hoo! So in about one or two weeks, the space will be filled. Photo to come of course!

What a cute idea! And if it falls on him during an earthquake, it'll just be more cushioning. :)
